An excellent book, the best in its field.(James W. Alexander, University of Georgia)
A broadly synthetic work in the best sense of the term, DeVries' book intelligently summarizes and organizes the best of recent scholarship into a comprehensive (and comprehensible) survey of medieval military technology. It should rank along with Van Crevald's Technology and War or O'Connell's Of Arms and Men. I've been waiting for a work like this for some time.(Bert S. Hall, Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, University of Toronto)
Kelly DeVries' meticulously researched book covers virtually every aspect of medieval military technology, ranging far beyond the pioneering efforts of Lynn White. Prof. DeVries summarizes the current state of historical knowledge about medieval arms, armor, castles, fortifications, artillery and even naval weaponry. Students of the Middle Ages and military enthusiasts alike will find Medieval Military Technology a valuable and unique work.(Richard Abels, United States Naval Academy)
